HRAI was saddened to learn of the passing of William (Bill) Vale on June 19, 2018.  Bill enjoyed a long and productive career with Lennox International, and was an industry leader who gave generously of his time and intelligence for the betterment of the industry he loved. He was a dedicated volunteer with HRAI, serving numerous committees and boards, including the HVAC Coalition, the Manufacturers Division Board and ultimately served as Chair of HRAI in 2002-03.  He was a worthy recipient of the Manufacturers Distinguished Service Award, the President’s Recognition Award and in 2007, the HRAI Merit Award.  HRAI extends condolences to Bill’s life partner Ann and their extended family.
